          The Pantaloons open air theatre presents A Midsummer Night’s Dream

          FRIENDS OF HOW HILL EVENT

          Midsummer night. An enchanted forest. Puck and his musical fairy band tell a tale of lovers, mechanicals, and magical mayhem. The critically-acclaimed Pantaloons present their innovative and hilarious version of Shakespeare’s timeless comedy – told, as ever, in their own distinctive and anarchic style.

          “Ingenious… The madness of Shakespeare’s Dream came through with such enthusiasm and natural comedy… I can’t really offer enough praise.” (Northern Echo)

          To book contact Pam Elliott 01692 630630 or www.thepantaloons.co.uk
          Bring a picnic and something to sit on.
